You Can't Take It with You (film) Quotes

James Stewart as Tony Kirby

  • (James Stewart) "You know, it's a strange sensation; I seem to hear ringing in my ears."
  • (Jean Arthur) "Me, too. And I thought for a moment it was the telephone."
  • (James Stewart) "Yeah. I hear voices, too. Voices that say, if you don't kiss her soon, you're a chump."
  • (Jean Arthur) "You know, if I were really clever, I could answer the phone without the use of my hands."
  • (James Stewart) "Saw it done in a circus once."
  • (James Stewart) "Hey, wonderful, you'd be a sensation on the trapeze."
  • (James Stewart) "-- It takes courage. You know everybody's afraid to live."
  • (Jean Arthur) "You ought to hear Grandpa on that subject. You know he says most people nowadays are run by fear. Fear of what they eat, fear of what they drink, fear of their jobs, their future, fear of their health. They're scared to save money, and they're scared to spend it. You know what his pet aversion is? The people who commercialize on fear, you know they scare you to death so they can sell you something you don't need."
  • (James Stewart) "I can feel a scream coming on right now -- it's up here, in my throat. It's fighting to get out."

  • (Henry - the Head Waiter) "What happened?"
  • (James Stewart) "What happened? Well, there was a mouse."
  • (Henry - the Head Waiter) "A mouse in this place?"
  • (James Stewart) "What do you mean, 'mouse'? It was a rat, this long, and it had hair on it. And there were six or seven of them."
  • (James Stewart) "We can't just pop out of the building with no place to go. Very bad idea that, you know. I know two people that did that once; they went out of the building, they were uncertain, so they just walked and walked and walked and finally they just died -- of hunger. Now you wouldn't want anything like that to happen -- because if, if that happened -- you're so beautiful."
  • (James Stewart) "You know, every time I think about how lucky I am, I feel like screaming."
  • (Professor) "What about you, Alice? Have you a family tree?"
  • (James Stewart) "My dear sir, don't you know that a sycamore is a tree?"

Lionel Barrymore as Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff

  • (Lionel Barrymore) "How's Essie doing?"
  • (Mischa Auer) "Confidentially, she stinks."
  • (Lionel Barrymore) "Oh well, as long as she's happy."
  • (Lionel Barrymore) "Quiet, please, quiet. Well, sir, here we are again. We've had quite a time of it lately, but it seems that the worst of it is over. Course, the fireworks all blew up, but we can't very well blame that on you. Anyway, everything's turned out fine, as it usually does. Alice is going to marry Tony; Mr. Kirby, who's turned out to be a very good egg, sold us back our house; he'll probably forget all about big deals for a while. Nobody on our block has to move; and, with the right handling, I think we can even thaw out Mrs. Kirby here. We've all got our health; as far as anything else is concerned, we still leave that up to you. Thank you. Bring it on, Reba."

  • (Spring Byington) "Oh"
  • (Spring Byington) "I thought it was some kind of itch or something."
  • (Lionel Barrymore) "Well, it's just as catching. When things go a little bad nowadays, you go out, get yourself an -ism and you're in business."
  • (Lionel Barrymore) "Maybe it'll stop you trying to be so desperate about making more money than you can ever use? You can't take it with you, Mr. Kirby. So what good is it? As near as I can see, the only thing you can take with you is the love of your friends."
  • (Lionel Barrymore) "How would you like to come over to our house and work on your gadgets?"
  • (Donald Meek) "Your house? Well I don't know, thank you."

  • (Lionel Barrymore) "One of my granddaughters dared me to slide down the banister."
  • (Clarence Wilson) "Too bad, is it serious?"
